FARMINGTON, CT — A school system employee resigned Sunday following his arrest in New York state on charges of sexual misconduct.

New York state police said Reid A. Fontaine, 31, an information technology network specialist for the Farmington schools, attempted to have sex with a cow on a farm in Herkimer, N.Y., while another man took video of the encounter. Police did not have an address for Fontaine, who was arrested Friday, along with Michael H. Jones, 35, of Ilion, N.Y. Both men face charges of sexual misconduct, a misdemeanor.

Fontaine worked for the Farmington school system for six months before resigning his position on Sunday night, according to Superintendent Kathleen C. Greider.

Police said the incident was discovered by a farmer who set up a video camera in his barn in an effort to determine why his cows were acting anxious and not producing milk as usual, police said. The farmer called police after seeing the video of the alleged sexual assault of the cow.

Greider said Fontaine did not have direct contact with Farmington students.

“The former employee did not provide instruction to students nor did he have responsibilities involving direct student contact,” Greider said. “As IT network specialist, his job involved the maintenance of the district’s technology infrastructure and hardware.”

Greider said the school district found out about the incident Sunday and alerted the Farmington Police Department.

Farmington Lt. Colin Ryan said the police checked to see if there were similar incidents in Farmington, but found nothing.

Fontaine was subject to a background check as part of the hiring process, Greider wrote, but no criminal activity was found.

Fontaine was released on an order to appear in court.

    If he was in the schools, he ha access to the children! And if he was in charge of ther IT and is apparently a fan of recording illegal things like sexual abuse of animals? The super would do well not to downplay this. The superintendent needs to start investigating everything he did for the time of his employment at the school. I’m sure all the parents of kids in the district are wondering. So sick of all the schools hiring sickos.

    I have a lot of questions to ask about the effect this guy had on the cow, i have been close to a lot of cows and i can’t quite figure this out. That is a large animal and everything about them is large. Now if it were calves i might be able to see it but………what a sick person.
